Google Sales Poised to Overtake Microsoft in Changing of the Guard

The Financial Times is reporting that Google's revenues are on track to exceed $100bn this year, and that this will likely be sufficient for the company to surpass Microsoft's revenues for the year. They cite an upswing in ad revenue as a large part of the cause, also pointing out that the biggest area in which the two compete are in their cloud services. I'm not sure what all this "changing of the guard" stuff is all about though.

As always, we'd love your take on this in our forums!

At Alphabet, the cloud is on a "terrific upswing", according to chief executive Sundar Pichai, who said the company had accelerated its product rollout and formed alliances with companies from Intel to workplace chat app Slack.
